KCNC is the brand of Ken Chang Industrial Company Ltd of Changhua, near Taichung, Taiwan. The company’s ‘E-catalogue’ touchingly states:
“Ken LIN is our leader and chief engineer, well-honed experience of aluminum and titanium design/machining skills for some of the famous bicycle brands in the industry. ... KCNC staffs are fuelled with the single desire to design and produce our bicycle parts finest possible.”
I was aware mainly of KCNC as a manufacturer of improbably cut-away derailleur pulley wheels in an even more improbable variation of colours - you know how we love that kind of thing. However I have been told that KCNC make an impressively vast range of components including chain rings, brakes, bottom brackets, headsets and on and on.
In 2012 KCNC released an ‘E-catalogue’ showing tantalisingly vague drawings of an electronic or possibly hydraulic derailleur system. We await developments with bated breath.
